Well, to quote your review over there:

"Yep. Uh-huh. This is it."

Obviously, I need to listen to the rest of this show ... don't think I have ever heard it.

Someone quotes Phil telling the crowd, ""I just want all of you to know, that this is the happiest day of my life."
Anyone know why Phil was so happy?

Helluva "Might as Well" ... never heard anything like that!

Let me know if/when you do...obviously i'm not expecting you to think it's "the best", but it always amazes me how under-the radar this show really is for one so brazenly smoking....could be b/c finding a good show in '77 is like falling off a greased log, and it gets lost in the reeds, but the sheer volume of OUTSTANDING versions of nearly every song played that night never fails to stun me.

I've had it on in spurts the past few days. Great stuff.

It really is a great show. I don't even care about Might as Well, but I agree ... it's fantastic.

Really? I love Might as Well. Kinda sums up a feeling that I associate with the Grateful Dead - "might as well" in some happy half-druggy metaphysical sense :)

On the whole I think the melody just never grabbed me. I can enjoy it, but it's more like OMSN or Don't Ease (for me) ... it's nice enough, but usually nothing special. I get it more from having seen Festival Express, but personally it never spoke to me much. Sugar Magnolia, on the other hand, is wonderful :-)

I like "Don't Ease" too :) sure, not as weighty or important as lots of others, but always grabs me. She brings me coffee, she brings me tea ...

It has a similar sound to Might as Well; light and bouncy. Major chords? Similar keys? Anyway, somehow very similar, but the sound for whatever reason doesn't grab me as much.

Even though it's not a favorite overall, I do have a few Don't Eases that really stand out to me. Check out 3/24/70 and 10/29/73. I'm not saying "best" or "top 10" or anything, because I just don't know enough for that at all, but they're good ones. Like the 10/29/77 Might as Well. (Funny about 10/29s ...)
